No water at campsites; bath houses locked from 9:pm - 7 am; cows roaming freely through the campground leaving droppings everywhere; wild predators rampant. If you have pets keep them inside at night - we lost one of ours and found his remains near the dump station.

Beautiful campsites. We stayed in Upper Electric Loop where we had electrical connection but no water. The logistical problem was that the bathrooms close between 9pm and 7am. This is a major problem for me and one I have never come across before in decades of camping. The lake was beautiful even with the dry season we have had. We... More

Tent camped just one night but wished we could have stayed longer. Saw great blue herons, river otter, hundreds of bluejays nesting in cliffs. All this plus free showers! We stayed in canyon side loop (?) which was very private yet close to "facilities."

Due to fire restrictions we were unable to campfire, which really dampered our weekend. Other than that, It was a bit windy but very fun regardless. Park Rangers were polite and let us alone.

I just "tripped" over this State Park while camping in New Mexico and am I glad I did. I saw it on the map and just dropped in. It was the offseason and the place was almost deserted. I camped on the edge of the lake in total seclusion. My only company was a band of wild horses that stopped... More

We stayed here out of season (October) and not all the washroom buildings were open but that just meant a bit longer walk from our campsite which was no problem. Very quiet, only a couple of other campers there which made for a very tranquil stay. The site we chose was on lake side, we went without a hook up... More

Spent several nights here (April '08) as a base camp while I explored the area. Really nice campsites and clean facilities.

We spent two days and two nights car/tent camping at the Bluewater State Park about 40-50 minutes West of Albuquerque, New Mexico. The camp site was nice, clean, and surrounded by beautiful hills and mountains. In the summer, the weather was cool and not too hot. The campsite has a big lake for boating and fishing. It also has a... More
